Transitions Talks  - Divestment

Transitions Talks - Divestment

What if we moved savings and shifted investments from fossil energy assets?

Climate change calls for an immediate and immense transformation of the global energy system. But vested interests successfully resist change and maintain power and privilege – for example, fossil energy subsidies widely exceed investments in renewable energy, and many national economies are closely linked to fossil fuel interests. Sustainability transitions may accordingly require actions and policies that aim to dismantle existing industrial structures. In this seminar, we explore divestment from fossil energy assets as a tool for sustainable change and discuss how it can be used in different societal contexts.

Date and time: April 4th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta

Keynote speaker: Olivia Linander, Fossil Free Sweden

Panel: TBD

Transitions Talks - Democracy

Transitions Talks - Democracy

What if we took democracy seriously?

Environmental problems are deeply intertwined with social conflict and poverty. As climate change and resource depletion put increasing pressures on society, more and more people will be forced to migrate in search for means of survival. At the same time, global collaboration, solidarity and democracy is threatened by the rise of right-wing nationalism – refugees are treated as problems, when they are nothing but human beings that flee problems. In this seminar, we highlight the interdependence of (re)democratization and sustainability transitions, and discuss how a democratic perspective can support efforts to promote sustainable change.

Date and time: May 6th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta

Keynote speaker: Shora Esmailian, Journalist and activitist

”Flera Vera”

”Flera Vera”

Sverige behöver fler kvinnor i teknikbranschen. Men på flera ingenjörsutbildningar och i många tekniska yrken är kvinnorna idag försvinnande få. Hur kan vi få dem att bli fler?

År 1917 tog Sveriges första kvinnliga ingenjör – Vera Sandberg – examen vid Chalmers. Sverige behöver fler som Vera! Industrin skriker nämligen efter tekniskt kompetent arbetskraft, och det blir allt mer etablerat att en jämnare könsbalans gynnar teknikutvecklingen. Så hur kan vi få fler kvinnor att känna sig behövda, bli inspirerade av vad de kan åstadkomma med ingenjörskonsten som verktyg och att trivas på tekniska arbetsplatser och utbildningar?

Arrangörer:

Chalmers i samarbete med

IVA, Sveriges Ingenjörer och Teknikföretagen

Transitions Talks - Rights of nature

What if we acknowledged that nature has a legal right not to be polluted, undermined and destroyed?

Human activities threaten biodiversity to the extent that we are currently witnessing the sixth mass extinction of species. It is clear that environmental regulation, based on anthropocentric arguments, fails in its efforts to protect the natural environment. In this seminar, we highlight a global movement that promotes the idea that nature has intrinsic value and discuss what role the rights of nature play in sustainability transitions.

Date and time: March 6th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta

Maktsalongen

Ø  THIS IS AN EVENT EXCLUSIVELY FOR CHALMERS VENTURES PORTFOLIO COMPANIES AND THE VENTURE CREATION TRACK AT CHALMERS SCHOOL OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Ø  IF THIS APPLIES TO YOU: SIGN UP HERE https://www.eventbrite.com/e/utbildningsdag-med-maktsalongen-tickets-55021048437?aff=ebapi

 Hey!

We are extremely happy to be able to invite all in the CV portfolio to a half-day with Maktsalongen - dedicated to educating ourselves in how to practice inclusionary leadership, create inclusionary business and communicate our business in a non-exclusionary way.

The event will entail seminars and workshops hosted by the phenomenal organization Maktsalongen. 

This is a way to get free access to knowledge and practices that are truly important when working within a team, and when engaging as a business with the outside world. 

Everyone from Chalmers ventures with no prior engagements will attend, and we strongly encourage you all to join us.

 So, why equality?

It is the year 2019, and there seems to be a growing consensus that equality is an important practice to live by. Both as professional organizations and as citizens.

The roar of the #metoo movement made perfectly clear that we all have an absolute obligation to help resolve the issues that have been brought to light. And things are changing; 2018 was the first year ever that an increase in female representation in management groups at listed companies could be reported. We also saw an increase of 65% when it comes to female CEO's. However, the increase of representations in management groups have only gone from 21% to 23%, and the gender-ratio of CEO's is still 90-10 male-female. We clearly have more things to do but truly believe that we all can be part of the change.

As entrepreneurs running startups in different phases, on different markets, and in different fields, you are all able to be part of changing equality for the better. As we see it - you are the builders of our future. We know that innovators and entrepreneurs are main driving forces that help shape what our future will look like. Just look at what is currently going on in some of our startups:

·         More people will have access to solar-powered electricity

·         People from different social backgrounds will be able to invest in the stock market

·         More people will have clean air to breath and clean water to drink

·         More people will be able to communicate more effectively cross languages

So let us all make sure that the coming years will see a change for the better. We can do this together.
As part of meeting this challenge of equality, we at Chalmers Ventures have made an Equality Strategy. During 2019 we will have a special focus on the areas of communication, recruitment, and competence regarding equality. As part of this, we are excited to announce that Maktsalongen will come to Chalmers Ventures. Make sure to register for the event!

Under träffen tar vi del av inspirationsföreläsare som ramar in temat. Bland annat kommer Heiti Ernits från RISE och Carola Samuelsson från Borås stad att berätta om innovationsplattformen Borås, en arena som stöttar innovationer inom hållbar stadsutveckling från idé till implementering i Borås.

Det andra målet är att nätverket bidrar till ny kunskap genom att skapa förutsättningar för att formulera och utveckla forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt som är aktuella och relevanta för både planering och forskning. 
Nätverket är öppet och träffas ca tre gånger per år i olika städer i Sverige.
